This is a beautiful game on the new iPad. Great to see developers using the extra power to ADD graphical enhancements to the game. (Realtime Radiosity and Dynamic Shadows) I've just reached the point where I can switch seasons back and forth between Winter and Summer. Now it is really getting interesting!

Lost Winds 1 & 2 are two of the best games I've played in a very long time.

Correct me if I'm wrong but even top of line graphics cards today don't have enough power to compute realtime radiosity. No game uses it. I think you're mistaking radiosity with global illumination, which is possible today, though I still think that LostWinds 2 uses baked lighting with some dynamic lights and shadows and that's it.

Beautiful game anyway.

I was just directly quoting the terminology used by the developers.
